On board compressor-Atom Ant

This one is for Brad -

Can you tell me a parts list of what you needed to put the small compressor on the pin box?

Joe

Joe,

I probably had a combination of things on mine I had removed from old trucks I sold, but this kit is does it all:

https://www.airliftcompany.com/shop/25804/

I originally didn't have a gauge. I had the compressor up in the pin box itself (mounts right to the wood flooring up there and powered it from the pin box electrical (battery charge wire). The kit has tubing with the 90 degree elbow and fitting that goes to your shraeder valve on top of the bag.

I took the momentary switch and deflator valve and installed them near where my docking light switch was so I could operate them without leaning over the dually fender.

Later on I found the gauge and added it and installed an air chuck and momentary switch to turn on the guage light, but none of that is needed.

Ultimately, the Wireless One would have been how I would do it next time, as it allows me to adjust from truck cab and maintains pressure at my setting. With my set up if you wanted to adjust it you had to jump out. I always the wireless one would work great on air springs too.

Thanks Brad, that was the 2 kits I was looking at !..

I searched the site and found your pics, the compressor looked to be about the same.. I may not go with the wireless, my bag usually stays inflated to my pressure for a few trips, i just want to eliminate carrying the small compressor I have just to air up the bag ..

Joe

PS - I meant to mention that Vaughan made those nice labels for me! He made those and labels for the ganged together switches in the coach.

The compressor is different than what Amazon shows for the same kit and I don't know why. I may have grabbed that compressor from something else on the air bags.

The wireless one is certainly not needed, but after I got one for the truck air bags I thought it would be cool. I never did add one, but I found I had to readjust the pin box a lot between running empty to storage or full to our destination and I usually forgot and had to pull over to do it. The wireless one would have made that easy to accomplish as I was rolling.

Yes, Vaughan made me those great labels also and they are great..

I was pretty much sold on the wireless, but now I am on the fence....My weights pretty much stay the same, no water, no waste, and the propane levels would even stay pretty much the same since my longest trip is 2 weeks.... I could still air up before leaving in the AM and not worry about it.

How easy was it to plumb the air line into the Tri-glide?

That part was real easy. There are some holes on the welded plates in the corners of the Trigilide so I just fed the air line up through those to the cavity where the compressor was.
